Eats - Makeshift Shepherd's Pie

Just out of the oven
I said I was going to try to turn the leftover roast into a makeshift shepherd's pie (having never made shepherd's pie - totally winging it), and I did.

I spooned selected vegetables out of the broth (leaving the tomato chunks, mainly), trying not to get too much broth.  I added the vegetables to the baking dish.  I took the leftover meat (it had been sitting in the broth from before in the fridge), shredded and/or cut it up into small pieces, and added it to the veggies.  I then took a bag of frozen mixed vegetables (I know, I know, but we're eating cheap, and this was a "make what you have in the house" kind of meal, and they were really tasty in there), steamed them, and added them to the dish, stirring everything together to even it out.  I covered everything with a layer of the leftover garlic mashed potatoes, and then baked it for 40 minutes at 400 deg.

It was pretty darn yummy.  Not bad for leftovers.
